Jesse Zeldin provides in this volume a unique reading of Nikolai Gogol's life and works. Proceeding chronologically and concentrating almost exclusively on the fiction, Zeldin gives a critical commentary on Gogol's individual works, explaining how each relates to one central ethical and moral theme: the identification of beauty with reality. Zeldin traces Gogol's quest for beauty by exploring his individual literary works. He provides an excellent section on icons as giving clues to Gogol and devotes three chapters to Dead Souls, including a separate one on the digressions of that work.
